No Bike, Car Or Bus: Girl Goes To School By Mule

POSTED: 5:54 am PST March 16, 2005

BISMARCK, N.D. -- A third-grader in North Dakota has a half-hour commute that is making many of her classmates jealous.

The girl trots to her one-room school south of Bismarck most mornings on the back of her 4-year-old mule, Ruth.

The 9-year-old said she feels much more safe on the mule than in a car or bus.

She gets up at dawn to brush and feed Ruth before going to school. And once there, she gets help from her classmates and ties Rush to a tree.
